UCLA Brain Attack! '17
Activity Details
Activity Name: UCLA Brain Attack! '17
Needs Assessment:

The UCLA Comprehensive Stroke Center presents its annual Brain Attack symposium to review the practical, clinical aspects of stroke prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. The course will cover stroke risk factors, diagnostic testing, and medical and interventional therapy.

Intravenous tPA and neuroendovascular thrombectomy are now proven therapies for treatment of acute ischemic stroke. The results of recent studies indicate that neurointerventional techniques of thrombectomy are beneficial up to six hours after symptom onset in most patients, and beyond six hours in select patients. A highly coordinated team approach is required to provide these treatments safely and effectively.

Neuroimaging techniques are playing an increasingly important role in the evaluation of stroke patients. Faculty will provide an in-depth discussion of innovative MR and CT techniques.

Target Audience

Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Interventional Neuroradiologists, Emergency Physicians, Family Practice Physicians, Internists, and other health care professionals who want to enhance their knowledge of the management of patients with cerebrovascular diseases.

Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of this program participants should be able to:

  • Summarize recent developments in endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke
  • Apply methods to accelerate time to thrombolysis and time to endovascular intervention
  • Utilize treatment options for ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke
  • Employ recent developments in management of arteriovenous malformations and intracranial aneurysms
